Small and a hidden gem, wow the food was amazing! The ribs just melted off the bone, the chicken was yummy as were all the sides! Would definitely give it a try!

I'm sure the beef, pork etc but the chicken was my choice and it was great. Its a small hometown place slightly rustic but everyone was friendly and prices were reasonable.

Stopped at Sweetwater Barbque and was pleasantly surprised. I had the pulled pork, it was great. My husband got the ribs, they fell off the bone before he could pick them up. The sauce could use some work but it was well worth the stop!!

We decided to stop in for lunch on our way through MO. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the turkey and pulled pork!

Not the most inviting looking place when you pull into the parking lot. They need some flowers or a pink pig or something. Don’t be discouraged. Inside might be due some loving tender care also because it seems a little drab. Don’t be discouraged. Order a Sweetwater special for $9.95 but only if you are hungry. They served two huge... More

Sweetwater Barbeque was once synonymous with great food around the Fort Leonard Wood area. Now it is nothing special and declining in quality and quantity. The workers think they do you a favor by taking your order and cooking your food. For better food and service, go to the Bandana's in Rolla. Food is better, prices are comparable, and the... More

Whenever we travel through Missouri we make a point of stopping here at Sweetwater. Found it by accident several years ago and have visited 3 times. Hope to so again soon.

This place can be aggravating. One time I go and it's delicious, the next time I go it's terrible. No consistency at all. When it's good it is worth the visit but there is no predicting from visit to visit what you are going to get. Since there are better, much more consistent BBQ places in the area I just... More

I love it when you pull off the highway for some lunch and you find a place like this. The pulled pork sandwich was great - this BBQ is sweet and tangy not like South Carolina BBQ. My companion had the fried catfish dinner and the fish was absolutely perfect fried in a light cornmeal crust. Standard sides were satisfactory.... More
